THE WAY I'M FEELING THESE DAYS
This is me preparing for a heavy scene with John Carradine, (playing my character's grandfather) toward the end of his life (and sorry I don't have a still of the scene in the same movie where I got to act with Gloria Grahame in what ended up being her last film). That's his gnarled arthritic right hand on the sheet in from of him. Turned out to be the only scene, I think, in all the movie and TV work I did, in which I actually wept tears. Which I've been doing some more of lately.
